Hi everyone, how was your weekend? Do anything fun or interesting? Or were you like me and had to work? Well, whatever you had to do or had the pleasure of doing, I hope it was enjoyable! I thought today I would do another edition of YouTube Made Me Buy It, this time talking about products EmilyNoel83 influenced me to purchase. I absolutely adore Emily and just to give you a heads up, this Wednesday I am bringing you my review on The Emily Edit, The Wants Palette. So if you’ve been wondering about that, stay tuned! But enough blabber, let’s get into it!

EM Cosmetics True Gloss ($17 US)
She absolutely SOLD me on this formula. This shade isn’t up her alley, but it is up mine! The shade I have is called Truffle Haze, a sheer grey nude shade. This gloss is comfortable on the lips and not sticky, which I fucking hate. I’ve been getting into lipsticks and glosses lately, shocking I know, but I’ve been selective on what makes the cut. This gloss definitely makes the cut.
Besame Cosmetics Classic Color Lipstick ($22 US)
The color I have is Red Velvet 1946 which is described as a mid-tone neutral red. Oh, and it is absolutely STUNNING. Besame Cosmetics is a brand dedicated to recreating vintage shades in modern formulas. Their packaging also stays true to that. I absolutely love the look of the 1940’s era and I wish I could pull off a red lip, but sadly I don’t feel comfortable in a bold red lip, but I will NEVER get rid of this. It is way too beautiful. It also has a very comfortable formula.
Morphe M506 Tapered Mini Blending Brush ($6 US)
Now I am not particularly a fan of Morphe but when Emily recommended this brush, I picked one up the next time I was at Ulta and man, this brush is a game changer. I never thought a brush like this would work so well and never thought I would actually need a brush like this. I can perfectly get into my outer V without going overboard and completely blowing out a look too far. It’s a perfect brush.
Milani Prep + Set + Glow Illuminating Transparent Powder ($9.99 US)
This powder has reached holy grail status for me, no lie. It sets my makeup without it looking powdery on my skin and still gives me this natural, slightly radiant finish without looking greasy. I cannot be without it. I haven’t used it in so long and I’m dying over here. I’m trying to currently use up the other powders in my collection before returning back to this one. I’m counting down the days.
RevolutionXEmily: The Emily Edit
The Wants Palette ($20 US) & The Needs Palette ($15 US)
Now, I’m pretty sure you KNEW this one was coming. With how excited I was about her surprise launch and how much I love this girl, you knew this one was coming. I know I can support her by just watching her videos, commenting, liking, yadda, yadda, yadda, but I wanted to also support her makeup collaboration. She’s never done one before and even though these are permanent, I had to pick them up right away.
So that does it for today’s post. I know I’ve asked this before, but if you watch beauty YouTube, what are some products that you purchased that were influenced by some of your favorite YouTubers? Any regret purchases or did you find some holy grail products? I would love to hear about them in the comments, maybe we can have a discussion! Thank you so much for your time today, I really appreciate it. Definitely stop by Wednesday if you’d like to read my review on The Wants Palette. Fair warning, it’s going to be a long one! Until then!
